African American Museum in Philadelphia

701 Arch Street Philadelphia PA 19106

The African American Museum in Philadelphia currently houses 4 galleries and an auditorium, each of which offers exhibitions anchored by one of the Museum's three dominant themes - the African Diaspora, the Philadelphia Story, and the Contemporary Narrative. The auditorium is also used for the Museum's distance learning program, for film viewings and other community events, and is available for community use. Through the joint efforts of the Curatorial and Education Departments, the Museum offers creative, innovative youth programming that expands the themes of our cultural exhibits and invites people whose lives span the century - youth, their families, and senior citizens - to come together and enjoy rich intergenerational Family Days focused on African American art and culture.


The African American Museum offers military discounts! Present your military ID and get two admissions for the price of one.
